INSPIRED: Big Sean

June 22, 2015 | D&L

‘One Man Can Change The World’ were the words instilled into Big Sean by his late grandmother as he grew up and he certainly doesn’t take these words lightly. In fact the words have become even more poignant for the hip hop artist since his grandmother’s recent passing.

Now with his new single titled after the penned phrase and now acting as the latest release from Dark Sky Paradise, it has given Sean the opportunity to create a visual for a track that means a lot to him. With honorary lyrical content, the visual pays tribute to one of the most inspirational and influential ladies in his life.

Featuring Kanye West and John Legend on the track, his grandmother’s struggles in life are shown, as she fights several battles in life, including segregation, gender and race issues. Without giving too much away, the video has certainly been labelled a tear jerker.

In other Big Sean news, his latest gift to his fans saw him return to his high school and help build a recording studio for its current and future students. He is also the latest public figure to be featured in the Adidas Originals presents #ImaginedBy Campaign. In The #ImaginedBy Bis Sean campaign, he can be seen returning to his hometown of Detroit; the place where he first envisioned a career in music. Now being a goal which he has made come true, Sean continues to strive for more, whilst giving back and helping others in the process.

Sporting the ZX Flux edition, Sean has no doubt inspired many, just as his grandmother inspired him.

You can catch Big Sean perform live next month with his new single in tow, as he hits the road in support of the Forest Hills Drive Tour. Performing alongside the likes of YG, Jeremih and of course J.Cole, the tour will hit 27 cities this July.

Here’s ‘One Man Can Change The World’.
